Civilian Struggles Escalate in Ukraine: Damaged Homes and Homelessness Increase After Kakhovka Dam Incident

As the Ukrainian counter-offensive gains momentum in the south, UK military chiefs have reported that Russian troops are facing significant challenges, including ammunition shortages and a lack of reserves.


The Ministry of Defence warns that elements of the 5th Combined Army are particularly strained, leading to a sense of fatigue and attrition.

Russian Troops Under Pressure:

The intelligence update from the Ministry of Defence reveals that Russian units south of the city of Orikhiv are struggling to hold their ground against the Ukrainian counter-offensive.

The 5th Combined Army, in particular, is facing substantial pressure, and troops are likely to feel long overdue for a rotation from the frontline.

Key issues impacting Russian commanders in the region include shortages of artillery ammunition, a lack of reserves, and challenges in securing the flanks of their defensive units.


Ukrainian Counter-Offensive and Moscow’s Response:

While Ukrainian forces have been making cautious progress in driving out the Russian invaders from their territory, Moscow claims that its own forces are fighting back fiercely in the south and east.

The situation remains tense as the conflict continues to unfold, leading to further strains on Russian troops already facing difficulties in the region.

Growing Humanitarian Needs in Ukraine:

Amid the ongoing conflict, Ukraine’s civilian population is grappling with the imminent arrival of a second winter of war.

The United Nations has highlighted the dire humanitarian situation, stating that international donors have yet to provide more than 70 percent of the required $3.9 billion for the country.

Approximately 17 million Ukrainians are in need of aid, and the UN aims to reach between 11 and 12 million of them.


The humanitarian coordinator for Ukraine, Denise Brown, emphasizes the urgency of the situation, as residential buildings have been damaged or destroyed, and thousands of people remain homeless following the collapse of the Kakhovka dam, which Ukraine blames on a Russian attack.

Hope Amidst Challenges:

While acknowledging the efforts of donors, Denise Brown remains hopeful that the necessary funding will be secured to address the immense humanitarian needs in Ukraine.

However, the scale of the crisis demands urgent action and international support to alleviate the suffering of millions of vulnerable civilians facing the harsh realities of war.


As the Ukrainian counter-offensive puts pressure on Russian troops in the south, their lack of ammunition and reserves becomes apparent.

The ongoing conflict not only intensifies the military situation but also exacerbates the already dire humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.


The international community must act swiftly to provide crucial aid and support to the millions of Ukrainians in need, as they prepare to endure another challenging winter amidst the ravages of war.
